Penfolds RWT 2013 750ml

The initials RWT stand for ‘Red Winemaking Trial’, the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a ‘Trial’ RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. Its style is opulent and fleshy, contrasting with Grange, which is more muscular and assertive. RWT is made from fruit primarily selected for its aromatic qualities and fine texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa Shiraz at the highest quality level.

Penfolds RWT Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multi-regional sourcing and American oak maturation that are hallmarks of Grange, expressing instead, single region Barossa Valley Shiraz matured only in French oak.

More than just its fruity initial aromatic demeanour of boysenberry and mulberry……arising peat and Middle Eastern (Moroccan) spices laced with malt, mustard seed. Nutty, cedary oak coalesces with a splash of freshly glazed fig and just-baked brandy snap.


Textbook RWT. Cranberry, blueberry (Danish muffin) fruits overlay a stylish, integrated (rose-wood) French oak framework. Pronounced tannins caught up in a magma flow of Barossa fruits and unctuous extract – more of a mouth-coating eruption/propulsion! Balanced. Persistent. Complete.
